Quilt design

Finally figured out how to save my masterpieces made in Threadbias and be able to post them!

Here goes nothing!

ds824This has been a huge learning experience and for that I’m grateful.  One thing is that on the Quilt Design A Day Facebook page all the images post as squares in the albums so it’s preferable to design them that shape for the best impression.  In the stream they show in their full glory though.

Quite pleased with this one, I was aiming for using one shape with variations and to have a sense of weight at the bottom and airiness at the top.

Poppy palette

QDAD002_cropThis was inspired by the colours here at Design Seeds.  Today I used my box of 64 Crayola crayons although the only way I could approximate the dark blue brown colour was to mix brown and indigo.

I’ve been busy making half square triangles for the Victoria Modern Quilt Guild’s first charity project, for which about 1,000 hst’s are needed so have been thinking about different ways of putting them together.

there’s also a set of smaller ones in Michael Miller fabrics on the design wall that I’m playing around with. I thought Young Sprout and Pirate Girl might get into exploring design but for whatever reason that hasn’t happened quite yet.  More of an indoor thing and they’re happier outside in summer.
